On the peaceful transfer of power

Last Tuesday, we elected our next President. As of now (6:00 PM on Saturday) our current President shows no signs of conceding.

Donald Trump doesn't have to, of course. Joe Biden will become President at noon on January 20 whether or not Mr. Trump does the right thing.

It's just that in this country, the peaceful transfer of power is a proud tradition. None of these modern presidencies ended joyfully or well. And yet, every one of the men and women shown displayed grace and dignity for the sake of the nation. Let's just hope Donald and Melania Trump have it in them.


  1. There is such graciousness in these photos.

  2. I don't think he has it in him. I hope I am wrong.

  3. Brings back some old memories. trump is pretty plainly not very humane .. I think he missed a stage of development back there,skipped right over it, somewhere.
